Default My first (and possibly last) polyamorous relationship

I guess I don't know where to begin. I just have some things I need to get off my chest. I just got out of a polyamorous relationship that lasted a month or so. I was honest and open with him about my current relationship and what I was looking for. He seemed to be ok with it, even though he had never been in a non-monogamous relationship. At first, it was a little strange for him, but as time went on, he was getting a little more used to it. It was very difficult to get him to talk about his feelings. He would just say that nothing is wrong or he had nothing to say. The communication was definitely lacking on his part and that was a big problem. I wasn't always sensitive to my other partner's feelings either. I tried to keep it "even" with the both of them and make them both happy, but that proved to be a difficult task. I had had feelings for other men before, but never got into a relationship with them. I've been with my current boyfriend (and long-term partner) for 6 1/2 years. We are very close and share everything with each other. I never keep things from him and he does the same. I love our relationship, but part of me is almost "addicted" to the new relationship chemicals. I think that's why I tend to develop feelings for another man pretty fast, especially when we're intimate with each other. Anyway, I'm just ranting a bit to get my feelings and thoughts out. I'm interested to know if anyone has any thoughts on this.
